Sagging breasts, or more scientifically breast ptosis, is something that many women dread as they age. In fact, the skin loses its elasticity as we advance in time, and those necklines that we used to display so proudly are now hidden behind sweaters that reach up to our necks.
This annoying phenomenon (although quite normal) can come from many sources such as age or overly repetitive exposure to UV rays. In cases where it turns out to be too embarrassing, we offer you three effective methods to remedy it and find the breasts of your 20 years!
Massage your breasts with pomegranate oil and Aloe Vera
According to an article published by The International Journal of Molecular Sciences, pomegranate oil has antioxidant properties that help prevent wrinkles and maintain skin elasticity. A second study published in The Advanced Biomedical Research confirms these benefits, and even adds that the pomegranate would help fight photoaging of the skin caused by too repetitive exposure to UV rays from the sun. You just have to massage her breasts once a day for 5 minutes.
Aloe Vera is also a great ally when it comes to firming the skin. A study conducted by The Journal of Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine on aging skin reportedly concluded that Aloe Vera gel would improve viscoelasticity and moisturizing properties of the skin. Its benefits derive in particular from its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-UV radiation properties. You just need to apply this gel on the breasts and massage them a little, then let the gel act for 10 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water. This should be repeated 4 to 5 times a week.
Firm breasts thanks to these 3 exercises
Firming her breasts is a goal that most women dream of achieving. Indeed, who would not want to regain the breasts of their youth? The 3 exercises we offer help reshape the shape of your breasts, reduce the excess fat that has built up there, and strengthen the pectoral muscles located below.
To perform this exercise, lie on your stomach and push your body upward using your arms. Your palms and feet should be slightly apart, and your body should remain straight and tight throughout the exercise. Bend your arms and drop down to the ground before climbing back up. Remember to breathe out when you regain your starting position.
Bench press with dumbbells
Lie down on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Push these dumbbells up while stretching your arms and hold this position for 10 seconds. Be sure to follow the line of your shoulders as you lift your arms, and that the palm of your hand is facing the ceiling. Then lower those dumbbells by lowering your elbows slightly below your shoulders.
Arm extension above the head
This last exercise is very simple. It can be done with or without dumbbells, depending on the level of difficulty you want. It simply consists of standing with your legs slightly apart, and lifting your arms above your head.
The cold shower
Despite what one might think, cold water showers are not a form of underhand torture but a source rich in benefits that are often underestimated! In an article relayed by our colleagues at Le Figaro, the women’s magazine Madame emphasizes the benefits of showering with cold water. Indeed, this technique very often relegated to the background behind the hot shower, which warms us and relaxes us, is very effective in improving blood circulation and toning the skin.
Cosmopolitan magazine confirms this beauty tip in an article on bad showering habits and refers to the opinion of Dr. Mona Gohara, member of the Advanced Dermcare center of dermatology in the United States. The latter explains that cold water tightens the pores and produces a moisturizing action on the whole body, as opposed to hot water, which tends to dry out the skin.
